Following recent approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Williams Partners has announced that construction on its Hillabee expansion project will commence in May 2016. By May 2021, the expansion will add approximately 1.13 million dekatherms per day of pipeline capacity to the Transco system, which currently delivers gas through a 10 200 mile long pipeline network in the US. Williams Partners expects that the first phase of the three-phase project will enter service in May 2017.

The Senior Vice President of Williams Partners’ Atlantic-Gulf operating area, Rory Miller, said: “We’re excited to move forward as planned with this critical piece of infrastructure to help meet long-term natural gas needs in Florida.

“The Hillabee expansion is among several fully contracted interstate pipeline projects Williams Partners is executing on to connect North America’s abundant natural gas supplies to demand growth from the local distribution, electric power generation, industrial and LNG export businesses.”

The expansion project will involve building approximately 43 miles of new pipe segments in Alabama, as well as a new compressor facility in Choctaw County (Alabama) and changes to existing valve sites and compressor stations.
